Sustaining a City’s Culture and Character by Charles (Chuck) Wolfe, published in hardcover on June 24, is the final book in a trilogy designed to raise awareness of the intrinsic identity of urban places and the importance of avoiding urban renewal that is out-of-scale, context, or character.

Chuck is a longtime Affiliate Associate Professor of Urban Design and Planning, who currently lives in England.  He will discuss “Sustaining a City’s Culture” with journalist Steve Scher at Town Hall Seattle online on June 11.

“Sustaining a City’s Culture and Character” is third book in a trilogy by Wolfe on urbanism. The others are Urbanism Without Effort: Reconnecting with First Principles of the City” (2013, rev. ed. 2019), and “Seeing the Better City: How to Explore, Observe, and Improve Urban Space” (2017).
